The Best Defense for a Woodland Hills DUI
There are a lot of pullovers and arrests for DUIs in that area – whether the police just pull you over because of the way you are driving or they do one of those field sobriety checkpoints and end up pulling you over, you get arrested. You end up getting held for a certain amount of time, and then they let you go with a blue ticket and one of those pink slips, which is your temporary driver's license because they've taken it away and sent it to the DMV.
It would be best if you got an attorney onboard right away. We call the DMV and set a hearing so they don't automatically suspend your license. We calendar your case with the court, show up, and fight for you.
We'll first have you come in and meet with us, and we'll talk about the case. It gives us all of the details, at least from your perspective. Then we'll be able to provide you with a an idea of where you stand based on the following:
- your blood alcohol level,
- what happened,
- your criminal record.
These are all factors that are going to be calculated by the judge and the prosecutor when they take their position as it relates to your DUI case in Woodland Hills. If you were arrested in Woodland Hills, you were cited to go to Van Nuys court.
They handle that jurisdiction. You'll appear in Department 103, the misdemeanor arraignment court for DUIs in the San Fernando Valley. They will give your attorney all the paperwork – the arrest report and blood alcohol result.
DUI Evidence Review
There may be bodycam or video evidence from the car the police were driving in. That would typically have to be requested by the defense, and if it is appropriately asked and available, the defense will get a copy of that. Seeing what happened there is sometimes valuable because clients often tell me one thing while the police report says something different. A lot of times, video evidence can clear things up for the good or the bad.
